Dismantling systemic racism with the intentional organization of Black parents
We believe that every child has a right to a fair and equitable education.
We believe that every child is capable of reaching their full potential when educational opportunities are made equitable.
We believe that the achievement gap can be eliminated when initiatives focus on improving the environment and system in which the child exists.
We believe that parents/guardians are the greatest advocates for their children. When communities of parents/guardians are empowered, they can gain access to institutional resources and support.
We believe that the students should have co-ownership of their academic success in partnership with teachers, parents, administrators, and district leaders.
We believe that when teachers and administrators actively seek to include anti-racist education in their classrooms and curriculum; regularly reflect on their own practices and speak out against discriminatory practices observed around them, then the color of a student’s skin will not be a predicament of their academic outcome.
